Directions to "CRAB APPLE COTTAGE", "NEWHOUSE", LD3 7TW:
“Newhouse” sits beside a quiet, unclassified lane, one mile north of the village of LLanfihangel Talyllyn. The name can be seen set into the wall to the right of the timber entrance gate. (See photo). The house and cottage share the entrance, but the cottage is entirely separate and private.
Please be cautious when using Satellite Navigation systems to find "Newhouse" – Our postcode LD3 7TW covers a wide area and you may end up on the farm track to Gwndwnwal Farm, which is 200 metres behind us and to the west.
Please ignore the farm entrance (on the left coming from the village) and keep to the tarmac lane. You will find us just downhill beyond the farm entrance.
Approaching from the west:
Take the A40 dual-carriageway from the roundabout just west of Brecon and after a few minutes turn first left at the B4558, signed for Llangorse. At the “T” junction turn right and take the first right, signed for Llanfihangel and Llangorse. Travel for 2.5 miles to Llanfihangel Talyllyn and at the end of the main village street continue north on an unclassified single-track road for a further one mile (do not take the right hand turn to Llangorse). This will bring you to “Newhouse”, a stone cottage on the left hand side of the road. Turn into the second timber gateway, immediately past the house and "Crab Apple Cottage" is at the top end of the drive.
Approaching from the East:
From Abergavenny, take the A40 towards Brecon. In the village of Bwlch turn right onto the B4560, signed “Llangorse”, “Lake and Activity Centre”. Follow the road through Llangorse village and turn first left after the Red Lion Inn, sign-posted “Llanfihangel Tal-y-Llyn” and “Brecon”. Travel just over 1 mile to reach the village of Llanfihangel Talyllyn. Do not take the sharp left hand bend over the bridge at the start of the village; instead turn sharp right onto the unclassified road. Take this road for exactly one mile and this will bring you to “Newhouse”, a stone cottage on the left hand side of the road. Turn into the second timber gateway, immediately past the house and "Crab Apple Cottage" is at the top end of the drive.
Approaching from the North:
From Talgarth, take the B4560 to Llangorse and take the first right hand road within the village, signed for Llanfihangel Talyllyn and Brecon, then follow the directions for “Approaching from the East” above. There is a shorter route from Talgarth, but this is on very narrow lanes with few passing bays and is not recommended for a first visit.
There is lock-up storage for bicycles (at owner’s risk) and bike washing facilities are available.
